    you're lucky and have good genes.

    Seriously, that's about it.

    I know plenty of people who eat right, exercise regularly, and are still 20 lbs overweight. And others who eat nothing but junk, never leave the couch, and are the same size they were when they were 20.

    But the laughing - that does have a lot to do with it. If you enjoy life and don't take things too seriously, you age better.

    •  Well, that's insulting. (0+ / 0-)

      I worked rather hard to lose 30 lbs and keep it off so that I look good.  You've just erased all that hard work by saying it's luck.  Thanks.  You're an idiot.

        granted the post was tremendously oblivious to issues that complicate weight loss and weight gain for many, but you didn't need to lower the bar of discourse by calling the person an idiot.

        sorry that you felt your efforts were diminished by that post, but the personal attack is just nit helpful.

        and visually drop forty pounds into the a little overweight category. That proves that it isn't mostly fat, just loose skin from being pregnant.

        Am I losing weight? Yes. But it will take surgery to take the loose skin off my midsection and upper arms. No diet in the world will fix that.  

        Some women do not actually get screwed by nature when pregnant, I guess. Either that or they get boob jobs and tummy tucks posthaste.

        •  I didn't say it's true for everyone. (0+ / 0-)

          Some folks have challenges that are harder to overcome, granted.  I kind of assume that's understood.  But a good many people just don't care and act like everyone should just ignore that fact.
